WWE Champion John Cena confronted Batista; Jack Swagger attacked The Champ
He tried to play it cool, but Batista just couldn’t bear the thought of losing to John Cena at WrestleMania. He pretended that dropping the WWE Title was nothin’ but a thang, but when The Champ popped up, The Animals’ fur stood on edge. Cena prodded him to invoke his rematch clause, but Batista begged off. Instead, he took a cheap shot before the new WWE titleholder tossed him from the ring.
As Cena watched his rival storm off, Jack Swagger, who won the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at WrestleMania and a title opportunity, ambushed him and quickly called for a referee. Before one could become available, however, The Champ recovered, causing “The All-American American” to clutch his briefcase and beat a hasty retreat.
WWE Champion John Cena & Randy Orton def. Jack Swagger & Batista
Enemy of my enemy is my friend. Even that old adage got stretched to the breaking point when freshly-crowned WWE Champion John Cena chose Randy Orton as his partner to take on Batista & Jack Swagger. With no love loss between The Viper and The Animal, Cena perhaps felt he was in good company. That feeling paid off when The Champ and Orton, despite an uneasy partnership, managed to wear down their foes. Eventually, The Viper struck the new Mr. Money in the Bank with an RKO to seize the win.
